UKO Boxing 30/06/2015

Professional boxing returns to Walsall Town Hall this coming Saturday, 4th July with Black Country Boxing’s ‘Independence Day’. The show features a host of the Black Country’s favourite fighters.

Walsall’s Dan Breeze makes a first appearance in his hometown. The exciting middleweight will be looking to extend his unbeaten start to life as a professional when he takes on York’s Dean Croft.

Fellow Walsall fighter, Luke Paddock, is also in action. The Midlands Area Light Welterweight Champion Paddock warms up for a maiden defence of his strap by taking on Melksham’s Liam Richards.

Wolverhampton middleweight, Ben Wilkes, is back in action. The 28 year-old returned to the ring earlier this year after a near five-year absence. The Black Country boxer steps in with Birmingham-based Fabrice Mpata.

Ludlow light middleweight, Craig Morris, returns to the scene of his successful debut earlier this year as he looks to record a second professional victory when he locks horns with Latvia’s Viktor Drizlionoks.

Redditch super middleweight, Carl Dickens, is also in action as he steps in with Halesowen-based toughman, Kevin McAuley.

West Bromwich Debutants Jack Summers and Matthew Gordon, complete the card. Super featherweight Summers debuts against Swindon’s Joe Beeden and Heavyweight Gordon begins life in the paid ranks against Leeds’ James Oliphant.

All contests are over four rounds.

To coincide with American Independence Day, a range of USA inspired food and drink will be available throughout.

Tickets, priced at £30 and £60 Ringside, are available from Walsall Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900.
